    Colossians 3vs1 teaches us to live a christlike way which Jesus demonstrated as in Galations 5vs22 as Jesus died and rose from the dead for our redemption, so we became new creatures, behold old things became new. Therefore we need to lay our treasures in heaven where moth and rust will not destroy ,for where your treasure is your heart will be also, Matthew 6vs19-21 says.

    Children are the blessings from God. My child is the fruit of my womb. Thank you Jesus for giving me this miracle blessing. I truly believe your prophecy on me Praised God and thank you Jesus for the blood. Meditating God's words and obedience to his words are more important than sacrifice. As parents its our responsibility to teach our child the word of God so that they will be bless in the land

    Your parents are in charge until you are grown. Once you're grown parents offers Godly advice. They word of God says that the old knows the way. Sometimes parents seem to be controlling but most only want the best for their children. As parents we must pray and let go while our children learn life.
